Fighting while on your mount is a great way to stay mobile and deadly in the lands of Oeste! Read on for a step by step guide on how to unlock the mounted combat feature!
Many thanks go out to Wolfen Dancer for creating this awesome guide!
When your character reaches Lv60, they will automatically be given the quest “Orders from The Capital”.
Travel to General Sutherland and speak to him.
He proceeds to tell you about an uprising in the land of Lansys, led by the Werewolf ancestor Jacob, and instructs you to seek out Niachilo to learn more about their ways.
Travel to Niachilo and speak to him. Niachilo tells you that the people of Lansys are the only ones who know the art of mounted combat. He gives you a book to read about the people, and once you finish reading, he informs you of two brothers from Lansys who may be able to help you.
Travel to the Sea of Oblivion to speak to Beasley Windfang.
Beasley sends you off on a number of tasks in order to prove that you are worthy to learn the secret art of his people. He begins by sending you out to collect a rare Sleeping Lotus that cannot wilt. Gather the flower from the Crescent Pond (you will need Botany Lv3), and then talk to Librarian Aphridiny. He will help you preserve the Lotus.
Test for Speed and Courage
When you return to Beasley, he sends you on a timed quest to kill a Fighter Soul in Emperor’s Canyon. You must finish this quest within 15 minutes. When you return to him, Beasley will give you a drop of Ancient Blood, the first ingredient needed to learn Mounted Combat. He then tells you to visit his brother in the Sleeping Jungle to receive a Mounted Combat License, the second ingredient needed to learn Mounted Combat. (REMEMBER: Ancient Blood is Sealed. You must right-click it to unseal by using EXP.)
Travel to the Sleeping Jungle and talk to Morin.
Beasley sends you to Morin in the Sleeping Jungle to find his brother Drogan. Morin, in turn, sends you to the Toxen Forest.
Travel to the Toxen Forest and talk to Drogan Windfang. Drogan agrees to give you a Mounted Combat License if you cure his mount, Myne, of poison. He sends you to the Bruten Pansco for an antidote.
Find the Cap
Travel to Pansco and talk to him. In exchange for an antidote to cure Myne, Pansco wants you to find his cap, which was taken by Giant Spiders.
Small Flower in a Big Swamp
Once you return his cap, Pansco sends you to the Instance Outer Ancestral Catacomb to collect a Silver Sheep Horn flower, which is what he needs in order to make a cure for Myne. The flower can be found on the banks of the lake. When you return to Pansco, he will give you the Antidote. (NOTE: If you lose or drop your Antidote, you can always return to Pansco for a new one.)
Mounted Combat License
Travel to Myne, cure him, and then talk to Drogan. Target Myne. Open your bag and right-click the Antidote to cure him. Then talk to Drogan and he will give you a Mounted Combat License.
Once you have both the unsealed Ancient Blood and the Mounted Combat License, travel to Lajar Wolfhowl in Freedom Harbor. He stands in the same courtyard as General Sutherland. Talk to him and select the Mixed Combat Mount option. In the store menu, select the Mount you wish to upgrade, and hit Confirm. Now that your Mount is upgraded, open your bag and right-click the Mounted Combat License. Congratulations! You are now able to perform Mounted Combat for the duration of the License!
(NOTE: The License will reside in the Mounted Combat License slot on your Character page for its duration. When it expires, you can receive new Licenses through Mentor points and packs.)
A Lv2 Mounted Combat License will allow you to use Mounted Combat in the Immortal Pool, Shrine of Light (both varieties), Hall of Aspen (both varieties), Chamber of Wind (both varieties), Water Prison (both varieties),Wraith castle floor 1 (both varieties), Tomb of Glory (both varieties), and Gods' Trial. If you wish to upgrade other mounts, you can buy Ancient Blood from Lajar Wolfhowl.)
